Colt McCoy Injury: Browns QB Misses Thursday Practice

The possibility of Colt McCoy playing on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers has lessened significantly. The Browns quarterback was absent from practice on Thursday morning, lowering his chances that he will play on Sunday in the season finale at home:

McCoy was not cleared for practice Wednesday. Coach Pat Shurmur said the closer it gets to game time, the more he is leaning toward starting Wallace again if McCoy's status doesn't change. McCoy told him he wants to play Sunday.

SB nation's Dawgs By Nature also commented on McCoy's status late Tuesday night:

In terms of evaluating him though, there's probably not much of a reward from rushing him back to action given the team's record.

The Browns have very little to play for other than pride on Sunday, but backup Seneca Wallace has been effective int he last two games for Cleveland. The Browns' offense has been more effective under Wallace, scoring 17 and 14 points after weeks of 3 and 10.
